In 2021 we began working together to create a new institutional strategic plan – a plan that would not only reflect our values but lay out a way forward as we look to the next five to seven years. We are excited to share our newly launched strategic plan: The Power of CSUSM.

The Power of CSUSM not only renews our institutional commitment to our students and our region but expresses a cohesive framework of who we are today, and what we intend to be in the future. With your feedback, we have developed a new mission, a new vision and new values. We have also outlined goals and objectives that will help us achieve our aspirations. We invite you to browse the strategic plan website and explore the Power of CSUSM.
